3-10-06 - Monday is the deadline for candidates filing for city council and school board positions across the state of Texas. The city of Sherman says they have two seats on the council being contested, which is pretty normal.
But Sherman ISD school board could fall short - no one has expressed interest in filling the position of board member John Altmon who moved out of state 1 year into his 3-year term. Two school board members are running again and no one is challenging them.
School board President David Kennedy says he doesn't look at it as discouraging, but takes it as a compliment that the board is doing a good job. Kennedy does wish there would be more interest in the positions.
